This year's Cuyahoga County Fair (Monday, Aug. 7 - Sunday, Aug. 13) will feature an exhibit on Memories of Cleveland.
In collaboration with local businesses, the Library has prepared an impressive display of approximately 100 historical photographs and artifacts depicting various aspects of Cleveland history. The photos feature famous Clevelanders from the worlds of sports, politics, and entertainment, as well as ordinary Clevelanders doing interesting things.
The display will also include several oversized panels depicting the construction of the Terminal Tower building at various stages of completion.
Library staff will be on hand at all times to answer questions about the exhibit in particular and about the Library in general. They will also encourage fairgoers to tell about their own favorite Cleveland memories by making brief voice recordings, some of which will later be available at the Cleveland Memory website.
Also, the Library and the County Fair have put together an online photograph contest on the Flickr website , where folks can enter photos to win a digital camera. It is not necessary to attend the Fair in order to win. Click here for details.
